“Still, I'll always, always keep the memory of’’

Long Ago And Far Away

A Gershwin Celebration • August 4, 2004 • Schuster Center - Our second Gershwin concert included new songs, a Porgy And Bess suite and the fantastic An American In Paris, featuring a story in dance choreographed by Nat Horne. We would return again to the studio with the incredible John McClure (producer of Igor Stravinsky, Leonard Bernstein, John Williams, Pink Floyd and many more) to record songs from this and our first Gershwin show on an album called The Memory Of All That.
